Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The fact that we were allowed to spin up as many servers as we had need of to support our geographic requirements while paying for licensing as an enterprise truly set Forescout apart from the crowd and improved the way we could design our access."
  • "We went with the virtual appliance option. The biggest cost to running these types of appliances would be to either have multiple virtual appliances at every data center or running Remote SPAN hardware to provide you the real-time network visibility."
  • "The ROI is priceless."
  • "It might not be the cheapest solution, but you get what you pay for."
  • "Time savings in finding rogue devices as well as identifying potentially unwanted devices on the network has saved the organization time and money."
  • "The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are on the high side."
  • "Forescout Platform is too expensive, so the price should be reduced."
  • "Licenses are perpetual but can come with renewable support."
